Cornelius "Constellations of Music"

Cornelius has a new collection of his recent works coming. At a first glance it seems to be part of the "CM" series (the previous was "CM4" in 2012), though this one is distinguished by bringing a good share of new recordings and rare tracks.

"Holiday Hymn" and "Tokyo Twilight" are brand new Cornelius songs, while "May You Always" (The McGuire Sisters cover) is a previously unreleased song that's been performed live with salyu x salyu. Also included is a brand new song by Ohno Yumiko (Buffalo Daughter), "Escalator Step".

Oyamada Keigo (Cornelius) can be seen performing live part of Metafive, the headlining act of festival World Happiness 2015 to be held on Sunday August 23.

Cornelius left out the ad soundtrack music I really liked. (, although some other things seem to be made using the same beats and samples as building blocks.

Please add a post if you notice that there'll be a live stream for World Happiness! Thank you!

What a cool commercial! Yanmar is a tractor maker that's been around for over a hundred years, and I think it's trying to appeal to younger people by using fashion... and Cornelius! :) Can't fail!

I doubt there'll be live streaming of World Happiness, but if I get any info I'll post on Twitter!

Patrick - do you know anything about Night People? Was that also an original song for this set?
